Melania Trump: She takes the side of LeBron James
Even First Lady Melania Trump (48) can not endorse her husband's verbal assault on basketball star LeBron James (33) in any way. Only hours after the US president indirectly labeled the US athlete a fool in a tweet, she sent a statement through her spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham, seeming to side with James.
According to CNN Politics, "It seems that LeBron James is working to do good things in favor of our next generation. [...] The First Lady encourages everyone to engage in an open dialogue to discuss topics that affect children today. "
Even exaggerated for Donald Trump
The fronts between LeBron James and Donald Trump (72), on the other hand, seem hardened, at the latest announced as the most powerful man in the world via Twitter: "LeBron James has just been interviewed by the stupidest man on television, Don Lemon." He made LeBron look smart, which not easy. " In addition to James, the Afro-American US host Don Lemon (52) got his fat away.
In the aforementioned TV interview at CNN, James reported on his "I Promise School" initiative in his hometown of Akron, Ohio. With her, he wants to enable children of all ages a better education. However, in the conversation, James also emphasized that he had no intention of ever meeting with the president, even if the opportunity presented itself. This rejection did not seem to work well with President Trump.
